Currently on Tap at Area Two:
Table Terroir - A low alcohol at 3.7% dry, full-flavored ale brewed with Connecticut grown malt and hops. Fermented with our unique yeast strain captured in our Hop Yard. Full of fruity, spicy aromatics and flavors. This table beer is 100% local! Bottles Available To-Go (single 12 oz. / 4 pk 12 oz.)
Brett IPA - This 6.8% “wild” IPA uses our house mixed fermentation blend of farmhouse yeast and three Brett variants. It takes twice as long to ferment compared to conventional IPA’s, and delivers a nice contrast between fruity funkiness and a mild resinous character from the hops.
Calva - Calvados, an apple brandy from Normandy, France, is traditionally aged in wooden foudres. We acquired one such vessel and aged our ale, dubbed Calva, inside for nine months to capture its unique essence. At its core, Calva is a crisp, slightly soured brew with an apple bouquet. You’ll find notes of brandy and pineapple with an oaky dry finish in this 7% brew. Bottles Available To-Go (375 mL)
Brett Saison - A 6.6% saison aged 7 months in stainless fermenters, this beer is fermented with a wild yeast strain captured from our property. We also mix in our house blend of Brett and the final fermentation yields a farmhouse ale that is dry, funky, fruity and lightly spicy.
Synopsis Black Currant - A unique spur ale fermented with bacteria and also with wild and cultured yeast strains. It is then aged on wood and abundantly fruited with real black currants for a complex, refreshingly tart beer. This mixed-fermentation process delivers subtle funk notes while the black currant adds a dark berry fruitiness and earthy tone. 6.4% ABV Cans Available To-Go (single 16 oz. / 2 pk 16 oz.)
Synopsis Dark Sour Cherry - Synopsis is a 6.4% mix-fermented brews use wild and cultured yeast strains and age on wood and abundantly fruited with real dark cherries for a complex, refreshingly tart beer.

Synopsis Prickly Pear – A unique, 6.4% sour ale fermented with bacteria and also with wild and cultured yeast strains. It is then aged on wood and abundantly fruited with real prickly pear cacti for a complex, refreshingly tart beer.

RUMBBL - We took Two Roads Passion Fruit Gose and aged it in select Jamaican rum barrels for a truly thunderous brew. RUMBBL is pleasantly tart with tropical fruit notes, balanced by hints of oak, vanilla, and sugarcane from the rum barrels. The calm before the storm! 8.2% ABV Cans Available To-Go (single 16 oz. / 2 pk 16 oz.)
Kriek - A metric ton of Michigan-grown montmorency cherries mesmerize in this lip-smacking Kriek. Divided up, that equals 4lbs. of cherries in each gallon of this profoundly tart, deep crimson brew. A wild yeast fermentation and aging for two years in French oak delivers a subtle funk accompanied by intense notes of sour cherry. Santé! 7.0% ABV Bottles Available To-Go (375 mL)

Absinthe BA Barleywine - An impressive bouquet of anise heralds each delicious sip of this brew. A licorice taste imparted by and absinthe barrel sourced from Copper & Kings Distillery in Louisville, KY, is balanced by notes of dried fruit and molasses from our tradition-inspired barleywine. 12.3% ABV
